Yes you can, but I meant without cheating. :mrgreen:

Underwater and (to a lesser extent) ice levels in most 16-bit era platformers. Can I just get to the end please!

The ease - and regularity - with which you get arrested early on in Oblivion. I'm sure I did at least half a dozen spells in chokey where I genuinely couldn't work out what the game was claiming I'd done. I hadn't robbed or murdered anyone at all since my last spell inside, but some guard just seemed to take offence to my face.

How about that Tri Force fetch quest from Wind Waker? Talk about tiresome...

Lastly I'll say the infamous backtracking section in Metal Gear Solid where you need to get the Sniper Rifle, ugh.
Agree with all three. With Wind Waker, I found the whole game tiresome...still enjoyable but tiresome. Way too much emphasis on sailing for prolonged periods of time across mostly empty/sparse areas of ocean to bolster what was actually a pretty short game in terms of the stuff you actually had to do to complete it.

Another one I'll mention is Resident Evil 3: Nemesis....a good game, but I'd have enjoyed it much more if it wasn't for that horrible 'gunpowder mixing' system used for creating ammo for your weapons. I can see what they were trying to do, to allow people to use their favourite weapons more, but I found it confusing and fiddly and slowed the game down somewhat at times.
